Barnstaple is now part of the PlusBus scheme. PlusBus gives passengers unlimited travel on bus transport at either or both ends of their rail journey. It can be bought as an add-on to any rail journey that starts or finishes at participating stations, and gives passengers access to the entire bus network in that area for the whole day. Maps showing the extent of each are available at the links below.
